What you saw was dark, very dark.. I am guessing the LRS-B we'll see is a next generation B-2, definitely with advanced avionics and integrated optics (like the F-35), Perhaps even with advanced engine technology.. I actually can't wait to see it when it comes out in daylight.. The advanced tech is the ace in the hole only a few of us will get to see. I saw one of those when I way a little kid, very easy to mistake for an alien craft..

TO be fair I've been meaner to you than the other way around. Trying to make up for it.
Now, about the two bombers. If I were the USAF I would order a bunch of the Lockheed/Boeing birds for most of the work. Have it do the B1 & B2 load. Have it be VLO & Fast. Like a stealthed up B1 with the B2's low observability skills.
Then secretly tell Northrup to develop an even more advanced version of their bomber (letting them know you only plan to order 2 or 3 of them for extra special missions, where you need something as VVVVVLO as possible) Put all the bells and whistles on it like the original B2 before the changes. And have that as an ace up their sleeves, to hit things that are deemed just too hard to hit with the regular bomber.

I can't believe that you think that I, who gives you guys all this info out of the goodness of my heart, would deliberately be mean to you guys!
